A 28-year-old woman who fell 25 feet down between two buildings in Santa Ana was rescued by firefighters Monday night.

The woman was stuck in the 18-inch gap between a supermarket and a strip mall, according to KTLA. She had reportedly fell down after attempting to jump from one roof of a building to another.

Firefighters were notified around 6:30 p.m. about the woman's fall, and it took 30 firefighters and nearly an hour to pry her out of the tight space, reported NBC Los Angeles.

Since she was also wedged between two columns, she was unable to move her way out sideways, so the firefighters put a harness on her and lifted her out with ropes, reported KTLA.
